The Roxy Ride Days cross Canada tour had its second stop this weekend at Mont Avila, near Montreal Quebec, to a sold out crowd of female riders. Upping the excitement were special guest coaches, including: Canadian Roxy rider Joanie Robichaud, recently appointed Transwold Snowboarding’s Rookie of The Year, Corinne Pasela, and legend Erin Comstock. The day began with girls showing off their skills in the pro and progression park where the light snowfall gave everything a pretty coating and cushy landing. The Mont Avila terrain park staff did an incredible job with the progression park and really allowed girls to push their comfort level.
As with every Roxy Ride Day, the camp ends with a game of R.O.X.Y. which is based on the rules of H.O.R.S.E. or S.K.A.T.E. A trick is called and if you cannot land the trick you receive a letter. The process repeats itself until the girl with the least letters is left standing and is crowned the winner. Taking top honors for the Jump was Gabby Kedzierski, Advanced Rail went to Veronique Laramée and Intermediate Rail to Emilie Fillion.
Congratulations to everyone who pushed themselves!
On the topic of prizes, a shiny new Roxy Ollie Pop Snowboard needed to be given away. With the ROXY Outdoor Fitness launching this Spring it seemed fitting to have a push-up battle for the coveted board prize. Several push-ups later there was a clear and muscular winner. Great job Chloe Vo! The next camp is at Grouse Mountain, BC on March 16 followed by Lake Louise, AB on March 30. Start practicing your push-ups and dance moves as you never know what the next snowboard challenge may be.
